For over a Decade the Old India Restaurant has Established itself as one of the favourite Indian restaurants in Bristol and in the words of many of our regular and new visitors "maybe the best Indian restaurant in Bristol" .

If you visit the Great Cities of Old India, there are fantastic examples of work carried out by various Victorian and Edwardian Architects reaching a climax with ”Lutyens’ Design for the Government and civic Buildings for New Delhi. These Architects were able to create a successful fusion of details from the Classical World and elements from Indian Architecture.

This has been the inspiration behind the conversion of this Magnificent Mahogany panelled Grade II Listed building into an Indian Restaurant, creating a Colonial Club Atmosphere that would be both recognisable to British Residents and Indian Princes alike.
